Looks Are Deceiving …

I was excited to make dinner tonight. It was a recipe from the bonappetit website for Seared Asian Steak and Mushrooms on Mixed Greens with Ginger Dressing (quite a long recipe title, eh?!) and seemed like the perfect solution for a warm Spring evening.

I wanted to post the picture this size so you couldn’t see how unappetising the meat looks, but here’s the proper sized picture:

For once I nearly followed the recipe, only taking a few shortcuts. Usually my kitchen shortcuts don’t make too much of a difference in the final product but today it showed. I really SHOULD have toasted the sesame seeds and I really SHOULD NOT have bought cheap steak and then overcooked it too! Despite this salad’s washed out looks it really DID taste good. The meatiness of the mushrooms goes fantastically with the steak and the dressing is delicious and zingy.

Preparation involves whisking the salad dressing ingredients, toasting the sesame seeds, sautéing the mushrooms and frying the steak – a very achievable week night dinner. I almost wanted to make another one with better meat, just so I could get a photo that might persuade you to try it too!
